Hardwood floors throughout unify the space, while dark wood cabinets visually separate the kitchen area from the dining space.

What a transformation! The monochromatic color palette makes this small kitchen appear more spacious, while the marble countertops, white subway tiles and stainless steel appliances pack style into every inch.

AFTER: Bold Backsplash

Renovation standards like new appliances and modern cabinets lead the way for this kitchen makeover, but the dark gray, brick pattern backsplash immediately grabs your attention.

Neutral Contemporary Bedroom With Brown Accents

This bedroom keeps it simple with neutral tones and clean-lined furniture. Patterned throw pillows and a houseplant in the corner add interest to the space.

Flip or Flop: Bright and Fresh Living Room Remodel

This neutral contemporary living room is unrecognizable after a stunning remodel from power couple Christina and Tarek El Moussa from HGTV's Flip or Flop. Sliding doors open up to a brand new patio and shed tons of natural light into the bright space.

Flip or Flop: Unique Use of Space in White Modern Kitchen

As seen on HGTV's Flip or Flop, an extra long countertop is a creative way to make the most of the space in this bright white, modern kitchen. Hardwood floors extend into the living room pulling the separate spaces together.

Traditional Living Room With Dining Nook

A neutral color palette, flush-mount light fixtures, properly-scaled furniture and a smooth ceiling add an inviting feel to this traditional living room.

Flip or Flop: Contemporary Black and White Kitchen

This hip and contemporary, black and white kitchen was transformed by HGTV's Flip or Flop team. Sleek black countertops and stone countertops create a sophisticated feel. A graphic, red and white rug adds a fun pop of color.

Underwater Flip

Tarek and Christina spot a gorgeous family home in an upscale neighborhood in Cypress, CA. They tour the house with their contractor, Izzy Battres, to see if they want make an offer, and are pleased to discover that the house has a large open floor plan, a downstairs bedroom (perfect for an older family member or a nanny), a bonus family room as well as a large designated office space upstairs. However, Izzy begins to point out troubling signs of water damage that cannot be thoroughly investigated until they own the house, because it will mean ripping into walls. But Tarek and Christina think a home like this could sell for over $700,000, so, even in light of their contractor's warnings, they decide the potential profit margins are worth the risk, and they get the house for $490,000. Construction begins and they quickly discover that the water leaks have created a severe case of black mold, and the rehab costs skyrocket. Will the costs of fixing this mess eat onto their profits, or will leaking pipes leave them underwater?

Inland Empire Cosmetic Nightmare

Tarek and Christina spot a large house in Ontario CA, going to auction for an opening bid 150K. But it's too far away to snoop and the auction starts in less than an hour. Based on comps, which are $240K-$260K, they take a leap of faith and head to the auction where they win the house for $180K. It's always nerve wracking to buy a house sight-unseen, but while walking through the house with their contractor, Dan Messina, it seems to be mostly cosmetic and can be done for 30K in 30 days. But after the work begins they find rotted wood, which leads to extensive termite damage. Will these termites destroy their budget to update the house? Will they be able to make the upgrades that will attract buyers? Or will they be forced to market this Inland Empire Cosmetic Nightmare as is.

Double Trouble Flip

When Tarek and Christina see a 4-bedroom house in Garden Grove coming up for auction at a super low starting bid of $250K, they convince an investor that this is a good, cheap property to buy and flip. Tarek and Christina head to a foreclosure auction and buy the house sight-unseen for $280K. They meet their contractor Dan Messina for a walkthrough and realize the house is a major money pit. There is no master bedroom, a kitchen that needs a complete remodel, and a backyard that needs a complete re-haul, which includes fixing the pool and pool house. With the construction bid at 80K, this is the most they've ever spent on a flip. And when their investor Pete De Best stops in for a visit during construction, he begins to lose faith in the project. With their investor breathing down their necks, this double trouble flip has Tarek and Christina surfing the brink of disaster. Will they Flip or Flop?

Flop House Flip

Tarek snoops a small four bedroom foreclosure with a pool in La Mirada as Christina heads to the public foreclosure auction where the house is on the docket. Tarek calls Christina, and from his evaluation of the house, Christina bids and wins the house for $210,000, a smokin' deal! However, as soon as Tarek and Christina open the door, it's clear that this dilapidated house needs a full rehab from tip to tail. It's a disgusting, smelly, confusing mess of rooms, with piles of trash, and graffiti everywhere. Tarek seriously underestimated the home's rehab costs, as initial bids from contractors come in at $50,000 and up. The cost alone for cleaning up this flop house is expensive, but when they begin to discover a bevy of unpermitted construction, Tarek and Christina are forced to demo unpermitted additions and spend money to decrease their square footage! With a skyrocketing budget and a rehab plan, which actually might be de-valuing the house, will this flop house Flip Or Flop?

Vandalized Foreclosure

Tarek and Christina have had their eyes on a short sale in Anaheim Hills for about a month, when suddenly it goes to foreclosure auction, so they jump on it for $430K. They arrive at the house for a walk through with their contractor and discover that the house has been vandalized! All the widows are broken, the hardwood floors are hammered, and there's graffiti and food all over the place! But worst of all, concrete was poured in the sinks, showers and toilets, destroying the plumbing in the house! Now their entire budget will be spent just fixing this damage, instead of doing the upgrades that would attract buyers. Will Tarek and Christina pull through this nightmare and flip this house? Or will this vandalized foreclosure sink their flipping business and make this a FLOP?

The price is fair and recent sales in the area show potential for profit.

Tarek and Christina head to Placentia, California to check out a lead on a midcentury property.

Foreclosure Shock

With no foreclosures to flip in Orange County, Tarek and Christina broaden their search to include Los Angeles County and find a house with a view that looks promising. The only problem is that the home is too far away for them to look at it before they go to the auction, so they'll have to bid on the property sight unseen. After placing the winning bid, they meet their contractor at the house for a design walkthrough. But listing photos aren't always what they appear, and the divide between initial perception and present reality has left Tarek and Christina in total foreclosure shock.

Big Lot Little Flip

With a low asking price compared to comparable properties, the house is already attracting interest from other investors.

Hilltop Hangup

Tarek and Christina come across a short sale listing in a desirable, hilly neighborhood of La Mirada, California. Although its price as compared to recent sales in the area leaves a tighter profit margin than they would like, the 1990s home is newer than the investment properties they typically buy and shouldn't need as much renovation as a result. With Tarek and Christina's usual contractor tied up by their growing roster of flip properties, they turn to a new contractor who comes recommended by fellow flippers. Will this newer home and new contractor make for a straightforward flip or could surprise costs and small mistakes leave Tarek and Christina risking a flop on this hilltop hangup?

Tarek believes the reward will outweigh the risk and they buy the property. But as renovation begins, problems and disagreements rise to the top.

A Pig In A Poke

Tarek and Christina spot a trust sale in Fullerton, California. It's tenant occupied which means they cannot inspect the house, but the numbers look good and after touring a comparable, renovated listing, they feel confident enough to make an offer. Tarek and Christina arrive at their new house ready to design but that will have to be put on hold as they could not have anticipated what they find. Can they keep this flip on track or will a bevy of surprise expenses deliver them a flop? Have Tarek and Christina fooled themselves into buying a pig in a poke?

Abort Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a promising deal in Long Beach, California. Since the property is currently tenant-occupied, they can't inspect inside the house and their decision to buy will have to be made based on what they can see from the car. It's a gamble to be sure, but with comparable properties selling for nearly $100,000 above this home's asking price, it's an educated risk. Will Tarek and Christina choose to accept this mission or could their good fortune flip into a flop?

As a result, when a fellow flipper contacts them about partnering on a house and he wants to split the time, money, and profit 50/50, they are very interested. But flipping is not a team sport; it's a competitive business and trade secrets are a closely guarded commodity. Can Tarek and Christina play both mentor and business partner? Will they all see eye to eye on budget and design, or could disagreement dissolve friendship and profit into a flip with the enemy?

Junk Yard Flip

Tarek and Christina spot an interesting property in Long Beach, California as they peruse the day's listings. It's a very small house with a massive structure in the backyard and because the house is currently tenant-occupied, Tarek and Christina will have to make their buying decision without the benefit of personally inspecting the property. The potential value of the back structure is too much to pass up and Tarek and Christina make a deal to buy the property; but when they arrive as the new owners, they are shocked by what they find. Can Tarek and Christina transform this trash heap into a treasure trove or will they be left wishing they never laid eyes on this junk yard flip?
